Reception Venues Glendale CA
Wedding Budget Myths
Many couples who are planning a wedding and looking for reception venues in Glendale CA look for ways to keep the cost of the event down as much as possible. There are countless numbers of tips and ideas, offering all kinds of ways that this can be done. However, many of these so-called tips actually result in higher costs for the couple.
Following are some of the more common “myths” of wedding budget savers that engaged couples should watch out for and carefully check out before making decisions and booking one of the reception venues in Glendale CA they are considering.
Do-It-Yourself Saves Money
There are some items or tasks that doing it yourself can save you money, but there are also many items that end up costing you more. For example, many couples consider making wedding décor items themselves. But by the time all the materials are purchased, as well as the time that is required to make each item, the result is that it would have been much less expensive and much less stressful to just purchase the items already made. Check with the reception venues in Glendale CA you are considering to see what type of decor they offer/provide and compare the prices of DIY items.
A Fake Wedding Cake Instead of Real Cake Will Save Money
Many couples also think that it will be cheaper to have a fake wedding cake made and just serve wedding guests from a sheet cake. The truth is that it is not the cake itself that drives up the cost of a wedding cake, but the decorating that it entails. That same decorating will be required even if the cake is fake.
Hiring Friends Will Save Money
Many of us have friends who have talents in baking, photography, floral arrangements, or other activities that couples normally hire vendors for. Although you may be saving money by having a friend take your wedding photos or make your wedding cake, there is a high probability that what you end up with will be nothing like you would have ended up with if you hired a professional. In the end, you could be so unhappy that it could cost you the friendship, far more expensive than paying a vendor.
Using Silk Flowers Instead of Real Flowers Will Save Money
Although many silk flowers can be just as beautiful as the real thing, the cost of these items is often just as expensive as using actual flowers. Discuss the difference in costs and different options you may have with your florist.
Disc Jockeys Are Not as Good as a Live Band
Disc jockeys are usually less expensive than a live band. The key to whether or not a DJ is as good as a live band is the personality of the person you hire. Many DJs have such an extensive playlist that they offer multiple genres that will please all of your guests. It is much easier for guest requests to get played, as well, since many live bands have a set playlist and really do not like to deviate from the list or they may not even know the song the guest is requesting. And the price difference between a disc jockey and a live band can be substantial. Many Glendale CA reception venues work with different disc jockeys and bands, for example including them in a packaged deal.
